We Hear: Delbridge, Holroyd Out at McKinney? (Updated: Yes)

Since March 1, we’ve been receiving tips that McKinney partner/chief strategy officer Andrew Delbridge is no longer with Raleigh-Durham agency McKinney, which has repeatedly denied his departure. Then again, we have no proof that he’s still there as calls have been transferred to someone else’s voicemail. Delbridge has spent 12 years at the NC agency and has recently served as chairman on the strategy committee for the 4A’s.

In addition to Delbridge, we’re hearing that partner, connection planning director Doug Holroyd is also out at McKinney. No word on his status either (check what toplines his LinkedIn), but prior to his most recent gig, he held a similar role for five years at Fallon. We’ll let you know what’s happening as the story develops.

Update: We’ve received confirmation that Delbridge is moving on from his CSO post, though he will remain on as a consultant to McKinney. In addition, we’ve been told as part of “reviewing where we want to focus strategic efforts moving forward,” McKinney has also parted ways with Holroyd.
